For many years, the common belief was that you only go to the doctor when you’re sick. Now it is common practice to visit your primary care doctor for a yearly examination. Just as you maintain your health with a primary doctor and dentist, it is important to maintain regular chiropractic treatments. This is to stay well, not just relieve back pain.
The First Sign
Remember when you were little and being sick meat you stayed home from school when you were sick, and you went back when you were better? We’ve been conditioned to think that being sick means there are clear symptoms, but that’s not always the case. Many health conditions and problems are the direct result of unhealthy lifestyles that don’t always show obvious symptoms until the condition is advanced.
A Healthy Response
The opposite can also be true — sometimes symptoms present themselves, but your body is showing it is functioning properly. For example, let’s say you eat a food item that was not handled correctly. You later find yourself vomiting to expel it from your system. You might not feel good in the moment, but your body is having a healthy response. True health isn’t limited to feeling good every moment, but how well our bodies function.
Central Nervous System
How well our bodies function is based on the health and wellness of our central nervous system, and that is why so many patients continue to come back to our chiropractic practice for wellness care. Our patients want to know that every tissue and organ has an uninterrupted nerve supply. When you receive regular chiropractic adjustments, your overall health and wellness improves which helps you prevent and detect problems before they turn into major health issues.
Achieve True Health
True health is so much more than just not being sick. It is your mental, social, and physical well-being. A healthy diet, regular exercise, hydration, and other healthy habits produce optimal results when your nervous system is functioning as it should.
We all want to feel good, and your health care should not be limited to times when you are in pain or experiencing other negative symptoms. Issues can exist even without obvious symptoms, like high blood pressure and heart disease. For more information on how our team can help you achieve true health, click here to contact us.
